Mechanism of sodium loss with muscle sodium deficiency in sodium supplemented and unsupplemented subjects during hypokinesia
It is concluded that muscle Na+ deficiency is more evident when Na+ consumption is higher and that Muscle Na+ loss was more exacerbated with higher than lower muscle Na- deficiency indicating that during prolonged HK the muscle Na+, deficiency is due to the inability of the body to use Na+, but not to Na+ shortage in diet.

Magnesium loss in magnesium deficient subjects with and without physical exercise during prolonged hypokinesia.
Mg2+ deficiency is more evident with than without physical exercise and M g2+ loss is exacerbated more with higher than lower Mg2+, indicating that Mg 2+ deficiency with and without physical Exercise is due to inability of the body to use Mg1+ and more so when physically healthy subjects are submitted to prolonged periodic than continuous hypokinesia.
